Sling TV is About to Add Local Over the Air TV




SlingLove Sling TV? Love your Antenna? Wish you could get both through one interface? According to Sling TV is about to add all the local stations you pick up with an antenna to their streaming service.

The addition of local TV stations will be done by a new box called AirTV. The AirTV box will allow you to plug in your antenna and it will then stream your local stations inside your Sling TV app (Note you will still need an antenna for this to work).

No official statement has come from Sling TV, or their parent company DISH, but we do know there was an FCC filing from DISH last year for a AirTV.

At its core the AirTV is just an Android box that runs the Sling TV and Sling Media software. Connect your antenna, then connect it to your internet and you are all set. If you want to learn more and see photos head over to
